Important Offices for COEHD Majors
For our students seeking teacher certification, you’ll want to be in touch with Carol Pike and/or Rose Zuniga to get all the information you’ll need about passing scores for TSI, the state Content Exams, TB test and background check. Give them a call at 361-825-3074 or 361-825-2433 or stop by FC 201 for a visit. New Department and Location for Interdisciplinary Studies Majors
If your major is in Interdisciplinary Studies, it’s important to note that the department which houses this major has been renamed Curriculum, Instruction and Learning Sciences, or CILS. Also, most all faculty offices for this department have relocated to the Early Childhood Development Center, or ECDC, on campus.
Program GPA Requirements
Did you know that all majors in the COEHD have a major GPA requirement? For our students seeking teacher certification and our Kinesiology students seeking entry into field experience, this GPA is 2.75. If you think your GPA might be lower than this, visit with your COEHD advisor to get assistance in targeting your course repeats to increase your GPA.
